National Museum of Wales Through the Eyes of a 5 Year Old

National Museum of Wales

On a recent visit to the museum in Cardiff I let my 5 year old daughter loose with my iPhone camera to see what photos she would take and what would catch her interest. It was lovely to see the National Museum of Wales through the eyes of a 5 year old.

Admittedly I ended up deleting 200 blurry photos, photos with hands over the lens and pictures of her feet. Aside from that she got some good images. A lot of photos were in the worm exhibit which she loves and I’m glad I took it off her before we got to the Clore room my phone would have imploded through lack of memory.

What photos would your children take? What parts of the Museum get their attention? Try it and see what you find about them. If you like museums check out my blog onĀ St Fagan’s Musuem of Welsh Life.

Disclaimer: no people, animals or museum exhibits were harmed in the production of these photos lol.
